Daylight saving time begins Sunday

March 5, 2014  

Daylight saving time begins at 2 a.m. Sunday (March 9), meaning campus clocks will have to "spring forward" this weekend.
Individual departments are reminded that they are responsible for changing clocks in their offices, research laboratories, and departmental spaces. Buildings and Grounds staff will ensure that clocks in public areas and outdoors are changed.

In addition to changing clocks, the time change means that clerical, service and operations/technical employees; police; and firefighters who work the third shift on this date will work one hour less than normally scheduled. For that shift only, employees typically working eight-hour shifts will work seven hours; and those who typically work a 12-hour shift will work 11 hours.
If an employee requests the option of flexing the schedule, it is permissible as long as it is done within the same work week, it is at the employee's request, and the supervisor approves the request.

Employees on approved sick leave will be covered by the University's sick leave policy.

Supervisors and employees are encouraged to work together to meet both business and employee needs.
